I've uploaded videos days ago, but they're still not displaying full screen.  If I try to download the video, I get this message: "Video is still processing and can be downloaded later".

I've uploaded videos of the same format before and haven't run into this.  I'm uploading the videos through Chrome on my desktop. 

How much time is needed for the videos to process?

My videos from Aug 2017 were stuck in processing for 10 months now, those are my only copies, any idea on how to get them processed or at least get them back? I can't even download them. Thanks
